For as willing as Era had been to try, Emi was admittedly surprised by how quickly her tone changed. Emi's eyes narrowed, however- she wouldn't take that from anyone, no matter the situation. "Do not address me that way," she said, her own tone shorter, firm. "I said I would help you, but you will show me respect as your elder." It wasn't often that she pulled rank, as it were- or really had occasion or need to- but Emi felt it appropriate now.
